April is all about spring cleaning, going green, and living an eco-friendly life. So, why not get the little ones involved? It’s never too early to celebrate everything the great outdoors has in store. If you’re stumped when it comes to new and exciting outdoor activities or different ways to keep your kids engaged, we’re here to help. We rounded up our favorite ways to spend time with our little ones all month long.

- Get Planting!
- Inspire Your Little Artist
- DIY Hopscotch & Hangman
- Feed the Birds
If there’s one thing we know, it’s that animals are a kid’s best friend. Spend your weekend setting up bird feeders in your backyard. We love watching the reaction and satisfaction kids get from taking care of the animals they see everyday.
- DIY Dirt Cups
Move over cookie baking! If you can’t spend time outside, this is the perfect way to make dessert exciting and healthy. We love using Gimme Some Oven’s Carrot Patch “Dirt” Cups.
Helpful Hint: For the dirt, we swapped the cookies with our Double Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies, for a healthier take.
